Lily Impressions with Thoughtful Blooms

I wanted to showcase just how versatile the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper is. In yesterday’s blog post, Lily Impressions with Retiring Colors, I used the flower side. In today’s cards, I chose to use one of the opposite sides that uses variegated Grapefruit Grove. Simply gorgeous. Here’s a look at the paper:

I matched it with Call Me Clover, which is also a retiring In Color, and Night of Navy from the Neutrals collection. The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is a Sale-a-Bration exclusive and is so easy to use since it is photopolymer (clear). The sentiments are from Family Party and has so many mix-n-match choices that it’s easy to make a card for a special someone. Everything is glued together and the flowers punched out with the Small Bloom Punch (Sale-a-Bration exclusive) are popped up using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. A Grapefruit Grove colored Enamel Dot is added to the flower center. This card is super bright, super sweet, and easy to put together.

Lily Impressions with Retiring Colors

I will be the first to admit that I have not utilized the 2018-2020 In Colors quite as much the past few months. It was nice pulling out Grapefruit Grove (which I love immensely) and Lovely Lipstick (shocking pinkness) to use as layering colors for these cards. They pop beautifully against the Blackberry Bliss card bases and coordinate perfectly with the absolutely stunning Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.

I used a new punch called Label Me Lovely to accent the die cut circle with the sweet sentiment from Power of Hope. Both the Lily Impressions DSP and the Power of Hope stamp set are part of the 2020 Sale-a-Bration promotion and cannot be purchased…but you can earn them FREE while supplies last. The finale are the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots on each side of the sentiment. All products (not just the ones used here) using 2018-2020 In Colors will be retiring on June 1st, but if these are like any of the past colors, they will sell out before then, so don’t wait. Scroll down to see the five colors.

Beautifully Braided on Stone

The Beautifully Braided stamp set with coordinating punch on page 29 of the 2020 Spring Mini really caught my eye. How clever that you can “braid” ribbon through the border punch! And how clever that there are two stamps that can be stamped on the punched border. I have used the dotted line stamp for this card. The new Stone 3D Embossing Folder available during Sale-a-Bration packs quite a punch with the deep etching. We keep the loveliness going by kissing the flowers and buds with a little Wink of Stella.

I’m not well versed in flowers, so I don’t know what kind this is supposed to be. But that’s just fine because I can make them whatever color I want. This color combination is so pretty, I thought you might like a photo to Pin. The bold punch of Gorgeous Grape against the deep color of Blueberry Bushel, kept in control with the mellow Soft Sea Foam.
